Steps to Finding Employment

Finding a job is usually a newcomer’s first and most important job. Understanding how Canada’s job market is different from the one in your home country, can help to ensure you start your search in the most effective way.

Some newcomers choose to start a new career or profession in Canada because it is easier and faster than obtaining Canadian certification in their current occupation - which may involve time and expense to obtain further education to acquire Canadian credentials. Some newcomers take up any job (survival job) while they acquire Canadian credentials and Canadian experience. Even after getting certified, newcomers would be competing for jobs with people born and educated in Canada who have Canadian education, experience, are more comfortable with the language, working environment and have a wider circle of business contacts and networks.

Planning and preparation can help you overcome these barriers and find a job more quickly. This section provides information to help you prepare.

  1. The first step is to review before migrating. This section describes the process of becoming licensed if you are in a profession or trade that is “regulated” in Canada. Regulated professions and trades require their practitioners to meet specific requirements and to obtain a license to practice in Canada. This section also provides information about non-regulated professions or trades, where a license to practice is not required.

    You will also learn about:
    • Where to have your professional credentials evaluated
    • What employers expect from workers
    • Desired level of English language skills
    • Other skills needed for the Canadian job market.
  2. The Peel Labour Market section provides information on current job prospects in Peel Region, the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario and Canada. You will find information on salaries for different occupations, future trends, statistics and other information that will affect your job search over the short and long term.
  3. Employment Preparedness programs in Peel offers information on government-funded programs that can help you find jobs that match your skills.
  4. Where to Find Help in Peel lists "first point of referral" agencies in Peel.
  5. The Employment preparedness checklist will help you determine if you are ready to look for a job.
  6. Job Search Tools provides job search techniques to help you find your first job.
